‘’The Seas are vehicles for building understanding and peace between communities around the World. The Seas are a vehicle for transporting and connecting people and cultures. They allow people to experience and immerse themselves in different cultures so that we can learn from one another and learn to live with one another in peace,’’         Salma Zulfiqar

British artist & Activist, Salma Zulfiqar, will hold an exploratory creative workshop on the relationship between Migration and the SEAS.

Participants will identify strands they would like to document through art and will be invited to create artwork in the form of paintings, films, videos or photography on the issue of  Migration and the Seas.

Participants will brainstorm and discuss current issues related to Migration and the SEAS.         What Migration means to all taking part and how this can be interpreted into different forms of creative communication and artwork through a creative storyboarding process. The creative sessions will also explore the impact art can have in raising awareness of an issue such as migration and also how art as a whole can help build prosperous & tolerant societies around the world.
